Welcome to the Guestbook!
I’m always eager to read your comments about my books and stories, so please feel free to pitch in. Here are a few things for you to know:
1) I answer the messages here personally.
2) No message shows up here until I actually answer it to prevent spam and other inappropriate postings. So there will sometimes be a delay before your message posts, especially if I am traveling.
3) Teachers, a gentle request: Please do not have multiple children send me variants of the same message. A group email is much easier to respond to and not such a drain on my time. My thanks in advance for being alert to this.

Dear Mr. Coville,
Not only did my fourth and fifth graders love the movie version of "Aliens Ate My Homework," but I have second and third graders happily telling me that they enjoyed it and today a first grader told me she watched it with her Father! Two of my third grade classes have voted to read the book for our next read aloud because so many of them were captivated by the movie. This will give us a lot of rich opportunities to compare the original text with the changes in the script. Thanks for letting us in on this next adventure! And, of course, my original student who asked if your books had ever been turned into movies is hoping that Netflix will do a sequel and portray the return of Rod's Father. It has really been delightful to see so many of my students go on this journey with Rod and Elspeth.
Sincerely, Mamie Rock
"My Teacher Is An Alien" was my first book that I purchased with my own money at my elementary school's book fair. I remember reading the book and feeling the absolute thrill of the story! It was by far my favorite book that I had ever read.
I remember buying the third installation, "My Teacher Fried My Brains", at another year's book fair, and laying on the couch in the small library my parents had converted out of a small office in our house. And by the time dinner was ready, I had read the entire book! That was my very first experience of ever reading an entire book in one day, and I loved it!
I was sad the day that I finished the final book in that series, and thinking, "now what?" That series opened my eyes to a love of fantasy fiction and a general love of reading. I still think fondly of those books and those memories they've left with me. I am a parent myself now and when I saw the new movie in our family video store, I knew I wanted my kids to see it and experience the author Bruce Coville.
Thank you so very much for what you've done in creating hundreds of fantastical books that lure the reader into worlds beyond their imaginations!
Hey Bruce? I have to do an author study and I was wondering if you could tell me what inspired you to write your stories?
I love unicorns and we had to do an author study and so I finally had a choice to choose something that actually interests me!
I've been fascinated with aliens my whole life. Finally an author who writes about what I love. I just started reading aliens ate my homework and I love it. 🙂
I loved Always October but there is one thing that surprised me, the very end it put me on a total cliffhanger because that it didn't show what kind of monster Jake was. I would love it if you made a sequel to this book.
Hello! The Unicorn Chronicles is a series that is near and dear to my heart. I started reading Into the Land of the Unicorns in 2nd grade and read the first 3 books countless times after that. I recently got a copy of The Last Hunt and couldn't put it down. Thank you for taking the time to wrap up the story the way it deserved! Just wanted to pop in and say thanks. 🙂 -Lauren
Hi Mr. Coville, Thank you for replying to me! I ended up getting a copy from my local library, and while I am sad that the series is finished, I am pleased about how it ended. It was in the children's section of the library, and I know it is geared towards the younger demographic, but the last book really moved me. I had grown attached to all your characters and am happy I could join them on their adventures. So few books are that well thought out, and The Last Hunt put me in such a good mood. I am still trying to get a copy. Thank you again so replying, so many authors don't find the time to interact with fans! Also, are you planning on releasing new books any time soon? Thanks, Ally
Hi Bruce! I just wanted to say that I've enjoyed your books since I was in kindergarten and I still enjoy them even 17 years later! I immediately fell in love with the Unicorn Chronicles and that is by far my most favorite. Also, you have spoiled me for other audio books with your work with Full Cast Audio. I just have a few questions, have you ever thought about writing any more material in connection with the Unicorn Chronicles? (It's been far too long!) Also, I would like to know, have any of the universes in your series' every crossed over? Thank you for all that you do!
